Peachy Buttermilk Bundt
This month's bundt cake theme is peaches and our group founders, Anuradha of Baker Street and Lora of Cake Duchess, chose perfectly. August is National Peach Month for good reason and Brian and I can hardly walk past a fruit stand these days without being drawn in by their intoxicating smell. Peach daiquiris and peach pies and popular items on our August menu. So, a peach bundt cake? Absolutely! Coming right up.
1 Cup sugar
1 Stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 Teaspoon vanilla
1/4 Cup buttermilk
Zest of 1 lemon
1 1/2 Cups all purpose flour plus 1/4 cup
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup confectioners sugar
2 Tablespoons peach nectar
Pinch of salt
Using either a stand mixer or hand mixer, add the sugar and eggs to a large bowl and cream together for a couple of minutes until the eggs are a light golden color. Beat in the butter until smooth. Add the vanilla, lemon zest and buttermilk and mix thoroughly. In a separate bowl, sift together the 1 1/2 cups of flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Add the flour mixture into the egg batter and mix. Add the peaches and stir just until combined.
Butter and flour an 8 or 10 cup bundt pan and pour in the batter. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 50 - 60 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean. Allow to cool thoroughly before removing from the pan.
Make the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar and peach nectar until thoroughly combined and spoon it over the cooled cake. Makes approximately 8 - 10 servings.
